Storyline

An eccentric older woman (Ann-Margret) implicates her brutal & controlling lover in the murder of a young intellectually disabled girl. Absorbed with "Murder She Wrote" and "Matlock", she creates details of the murder from clues she picks up from the detectives (Marg Helgenberger, Henry Thomas) on the case. Implicating herself and sentenced to jail, she then recants her testimony. But no one believes her until clues surface from the real killer that he is still out there, has killed before, and will kill again. He signs his messages with Happy Faces.

Ann-Margret does it again!
11 September 1999 | by (TN) – See all my reviews

"Happy Face Murders" is a murder mystery that is too weird to be true, but believe it or not IT IS! Ann-Margret is nothing short of brilliant in her role as Lorraine...it's very hard to even recognize Ann-Margret as a frumpy grandmother, that's how convincing she is. I definatly recommend this movie it is suspenseful, funny, and well acted.
